I really like Dave Winer’s story about Steve Wozniak which he titled “A story about Woz“. I especially enjoyed this bit:
I thought how cool. Here’s a guy who doesn’t have to care, he’s richer than god, and look at how passionate he is about the product.#
I felt like I had really accomplished something.#
The thing is that Woz is still doing it. Travelling around the world, meeting with regular people, listening to their dreams, and helping them if he can.#
He’s like a technology elf. He believes in the power of people, not just as users of technology but also as creators of technology.#
Read the whole post, it’s worth it! The last line is probably my favourite.
